[2003] EWCA Crim 233

Where magistrates had erroneously committed an appellant to the Crown Court for sentencing under s.4 Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000, rather than s.3, the court could only sentence in accordance with s.4 and the original sentence of three years concurrently on two charges was quashed and replaced by the maximum available sentence of six months consecutively for each offence.
